Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Series Title: Studies in Second and Foreign Language Education [SSFLE] 4
Description:

There can be no products without processes. Though this statement may
seem to be no more than an overused generalization, it encapsulates the
undoubted importance of processes and process-oriented approaches in
language teaching and learning. In foreign language education in recent
decades, researchers and practitioners alike are increasingly focusing their
attention on: 1) the learner as the active subject of learning and the internal
processes that constitute his/her learning leading to the development of
communicative competence; 2) teaching approaches, curricula and materials
that reflect this view of language learning; and 3) other factors such as the
sociocultural context, social interactions and discourse, and individual learner
characteristics and differences. The theme of this book reflects this paradigm
shift, and the papers included here from the disciplines of foreign language
education and second language acquisition provide vital insights into
processes in curriculum planning, teaching methodology, teacher education
and professional development, language acquisition, language discourse,
classroom instruction and interactions, the development of language skills
and learning strategies, and language learning motivation.
